Publisher's Summary

Children are often taught that government protects our life, liberty, and property, but could it be true that some laws actually allow people to hurt us and take are things? Join Ethan and Emily Tuttle as they learn about property, pirates, and plunder. With the help of their neighbor Fred, the twins will need to figure out what they can do to stop the bad guys in the government. Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French political economist and classical liberal who wrote The Law, upon which this book is based. Through engaging dialogue, young listeners will be led to understand the principles of liberty and the proper role of government.

Great concept, lacks real storytelling

The twins interview their neighbor, and he answers their questions. There's no real story here. I like the message, but it reads like propaganda. My 5 year old liked the book somewhat, but he clearly wasn't thrilled. Kids want to feel something when they listen to a book. They want to take a journey. They want characters who struggle and learn from their experiences. The twins learn by politely asking questions and taking notes. That's not very engaging. It is a little weird. Still, it does successfully get its points across. I applaud the author and illustrator for their effort, because the subject matter is both worthwhile and underrepresented in children's literature.

A good intro to law

I got a promo code for a free audio book (the catch was I wrote an honest and fair review) and I personally have gotten the hard copies for myself.
I love that the audio and the book are the same so my kids can read along with the story teller. She did a really nice job giving each character a voice and keeping even my little 6 yr old boy interested. I like that it is a good introduction to what a law is and is not with out going into to much lawyer speech. I'm looking forward to the other books and how they are.
